Philadelphia, birthplace of the United States, is a study in diversity. Known as the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia is home to the Declaration of Independence, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the beloved Phillies, Eagles, 76ers, and world famous cheese steaks. It's also the focal point for some of the best mountain biking on the East Coast.
Within a 75-mile radius of Philadelphia, you can pedal your mountain bike through dense, deciduous forest; ancient pine barrens; pastoral, rolling, farmland; the Pocono Mountains; and Fairmount Park, the world's largest landscaped inner city park. Like the city, the mountain biking around the Philadelphia area is diverse. The terrain will vary from tight, rocky, bone-jarring singletrack; wide, dirt-surfaced bridle paths; lonely country roads; and steep, mountainous climbs-all of which you'll find within this guide.
